  • my kids are 13yrs apart. our dd is almost 15 and our ds just turned 2. We were 21 when we had dd and thought we would wait to have another one when we had more money and got out of the horrible neighborhood that we lived it.

  • My boys are 23 months apart, then there is a 4 year gap and my girls are 22 months apart. I have a 8 yo, 6 yo, 2 yo and 6 month old. It worked out really well for us, it is harder at first, but my boys are the best of friends and have alot of the same friends since they are close in age. We love it, and planned the girls that way after having such good luck with the boys that close.

  • My oldest son is 27. My second son is 15 and baby girl is 14. It was great having the last two closely together, so that they had each other for company. On the other hand, it was rough carrying two kids: one on my chest and the other on my back. I nursed all three.

  • My sons are all very close together. There's 16 1/2 mos. between the older 2, almost 16 mos. between the youngest 2, 2 1/2 years in between sets and 5 years & 3 1/2 mos. between my 1st and my 4th. My oldest just turned 23 in August, my 2nd son will be 22 in January, my 3rd son just turned 19 in August and my youngest just turned 18 on the 12th of this month.

  • 15 months between #1 and #2
    13 months between #2 and #3
    3 1/2 years between #3 and #4
    and there will be a little over 4 years between #4 and #5 when the baby is born in July

    I also had 3 under 3 (my oldest was 28 months when my 3rd was born). It wasn't that bad. They are 9, 8 and 7 now and much more annoying and demanding now then when they were toddlers, lol.
